Dates added for West Virginia education forums

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia education officials have announced additional dates for public forums as part of preparations for an upcoming special legislative session.

The first of seven forums will be held March 18 at Cabell Midland High School.

The Department of Education says in a news release other forums will be held at the following high schools: March 19 at Mount View, March 20 at Capital, March 21 at Woodrow Wilson, April 1 at Robert C. Byrd, April 2 at Wheeling Park, and April 3 at Berkeley Springs.

Each forum will start at 6 p.m. and will include discussions in small groups on core education issues.

Gov. Jim Justice last week called the special session to address teacher pay raises and other education issues. He’s asked legislators to meet with teachers, parents and other stakeholders before returning.
